email obfuscation?

I've always avoided using mailto links in html. When I use mailto links, those email addresses start receiving spam, and over time, more and more spam.

I've used this simple technique which uses html. When I try this on an ArcGIS hub, when it's published, the email address is converted to the web site address. Does anyone know why this doesn't work?

It appears that the only way publish an email link is to expose the email address to spam bots, is that correct?

I'm fairly sure that someone may tell me not to worry about it and let spam filters deal with the issue. That's not the answer I'm looking for.

Thanks, Chuck
